North Bay Village Uber Car Accident Attorney
Uber's rapid success has provided new means of income for a job seeker, new methods of transportation for the public at large, and new challenges for lawyers and court systems protecting injured victims. According to the Florida, DMV Miami-Dade is one of the top five counties for car crashes in the state. A six-year intensive study showed Miami sees over 4,000 accidents a month and more than 20% of the crashes that occurred in Miami Dade County happened within the city limits of Miami. Not only is driving in the Miami-Dade area particularly risky, but the dangers associated with being compensated by Uber's insurance companies has proven to be difficult.
